what do people think is likely to come up in media? i feel like i haven't seen many threads for people who do this topic as everyone seems to do beliefs instead, so i thought i'd make this in case anyone else would find it useful (as well as myself lol).

past papers:

2018 - outline and explain two reasons why the news may portray young people negatively (10)
- analyse two ways in which the new media may affect the political process (10)
- evaluate the view that the media have a direct and immediate effect on their audiences (20)

2017 - outline and explain two ways in which the new media may be creating a global popular culture (10)
- analyse two reasons why the media often portray minority ethnic groups negatively (10)
- evaluate the pluralist view of the ownership and control of the media (20)

spec - outline and explain two ways in which ownership of the media may affect audiences (10)
- analyse two factors that influence which stories are selected for inclusion in the news (10)
- evaluate the view that the media portray women in a stereotypical way (20)

after doing some revision i think possible questions could be on news values, representations of age/class/sexuality/disability (the last two are harder so perhaps more likely?), question relating to marxist and neo-marxist apporaches? i don't think it's likely that the media effect models would come up as that was the 20 marker last year but you never know. good luck for tomorrow!
